Just wondering but can u use the solution tat u get from invisible shield to apply on the stealth guard?
I got the whole thing installed last week but due to my own fault I am having them send me a new one for the screen. Other than that, though, it looks great! Hopefully I will get the screen portion soon and be fully protected again.

Those who have put the back on: do you put the battery door part on separately? Why is there a cutout for the Motorola logo? What about the camera?

I've finally gotten around to applying this body skin. My old screen Steinheil Anti Fingerprint seemed like its anti-print coating gave way and i was starting to wipe the screen clean more and more, so off it came. I dedicated a hour to make sure this skin was applied correctly.
First got a old spray bottle and did my best to flush it (about 5 mins of water, salt water, water, should have taken care of any impurities left over from whatever was in it before).
I took a dot of shampoo and filled the spray bottle, shook it around and did a test on the battery door, seemed to be too much soap so I spilled 1/2 the water out and filled it again with clean water. Looked like it was much better.
I would spray my fingers first, peel film off and give 2 mist squirts onto the film from about 6inches away, making sure the film was wet. Following this actually was a painless learning experience, by the end i was a pro at it.
Did the bottom 1/2 of my droid + the sides and allowed to dry for 30 mins, very little if any bubbles / dust issues. Had to cut a few ends off because they looked like too much overhang, used a sharp razor for it.
Came back and did the 4 ends of my screen next after the bottom had about 30 mins to dry, got real quick at doing this by now. However I was noticing that the ends did not seem to like to stick to the corners (was worried).
Waited another 30ish minutes for the top half of the screen to dry, still noticed the ends not locking themselves down to corners, by now i'm thinking give this body kit a week and every piece will prob have separated by then.
Another 30 mins pass and I get out the hair dryer and set to hot air and low speed, run it along every piece, as i'm doing this I am pushing the ends down. Magically they stick! No more white peeling at the ends (you guys know what I mean) they are sticking to and following the contours of the phone.
Going to wait another 30 mins or so and rehair dry the phone again just for luck. Then after a few more hours I will finish up with the screen protector that I was saving till last. I really like the way this body kit looks and feels(from the little I have touched it after I installed it), I am hoping that this will give me a good 4-5 months of use.
This is going to be a slow weekend for me as far as phone usage goes, figured this was as good of a time as any to install this kit. I really really wish this product came with either a spray bottle with solution or at least some idea how much soap to use vs. how much water. The whole time the ends were not sticking I was 2nd guessing my shampoo / water ratio.
EDIT: I placed the screen protector on using the same method's as above however this time I am seeing some splotchy rainbow effects under the screen protector and I am hoping they will be going away within a day or so. If not I am just going to get a Steinheil Crystal and live this week with the rainbow effect (I keep trying to rub them out).
I'll update in a few days, hopefully the body kit will be solid and stay on.

It's fully dry now, it looks great.
The screen protector took me 3 attempts to get on correctly, I constantly kept it wet every time. After it dried I can see alot of clouding around certain areas of the screen, I'm just going to get a easier to apply DRY screen protector.
I would pay the 3 bucks again to have another droid 1 body kit laying around.
